The recent is the donation of 100 beds, 100 mattresses and 100 desks for the community senior high school.
The incumbent, Nelson Abudu Bani urged all to rally behind Lawyer Mahama Shaibu Obei and canvass more votes for him while rubbishing rumors of skirmishes between the duo. There have been rumors of sabotage from the camp of the incumbent after he was beaten by Lawyer Obei during the NDC’s primaries.
